SHARING INTERESTS -- Networking: The good, the bad, and the inevitably awkward. - For this month’s Q&A, Jacqueline Bovaird gets people’s reactions to networking. We’re not talking about social networking here, but rather the good ol’ fashioned meet and greet. Almost everyone acknowledges the inevitable awkwardness, but also accepts the value of fostering a supportive community. My advice is not see people as a business connection, because that becomes transparent quickly. Instead, think of networking as meeting people within your industry who inevitably share the same interests. SOURCE: Jacqueline Bovaird; Stone Thrower;
